Multi-award winning South African singer, Lloyiso, has announced his upcoming THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM Tour, to launch in Pretoria on June 8, with additional shows set for Cape Town, Gqeberha, and Johannesburg taking place in June.

In partnership with Stella Artois, Lloyiso’s first national headline tour gets its name & inspiration from the artist’s passion for melodic poetry as well as his clan’s name, ‘NDLOVU’, “THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM” is a metaphorical idiom which expresses a topic that everyone knows about but is socially uncomfortable to talk about. 

The 90-minute show will take fans on an immersive musical journey with Lloyiso, renowned for his ability to create meaningful connections with his audiences. Accompanied by a full band, Lloyiso will deliver an exclusive performance of his latest body of work, sharing his pursuit of genuine worth. The singer-songwriter-producer, hailing from Gqeberha (formerly Port Elizabeth), will also unveil a new album during the tour.

“I’m a very sensitive person by nature. When you listen to me, I hope you get in touch with the same feelings and you end up crying, smiling, or dancing. I’m just excited to connect on a meaningful level and can’t wait to share this live in an intimate setting on this tour,”.

says Lloyiso

The 2023 Sama Award Winner for Best Pop Album, has featured in Spotify billboards globally, including Times Square in New York and FC Barcelona Stadium and continues to expand his sound, including dance music with his single “Real Love” – a collaboration with DJ Martin Garrix – which gained over 760M views on TikTok and hit #1 on the US Dance Radio Charts.

Lloyiso‘s most recent single “I Hate that I Care” is from his upcoming album, expected in mid-2024, featuring work by Grammy Award winning producers Paul Phamous & Ethan Sneiderman.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be supporting Lloyiso on this tour. It has been a long time coming and he is a singer who truly pursues his artistic worth. After his performance at The Soirée last summer, we knew that Loyiso was an artist with substance. As a brand that believes in the pursuit of genuine worth, we wanted to partner with Lloysio on this journey,”.
